Every Single Beauty Advent Calendar for Christmas 2018!

Posted on August 17, 2018

I know it’s only August, but news of 2018’s beauty advent calendars has already started to spread, so I thought it’s about time I gathered information on every single one so you can have a (hopefully) fully comprehensive list to refer to over the coming months.

The below list is in price order, starting with the groups (where a brand has more than one calendar) and then the lowest, and I’ll update info, dates and links as soon as I have the info myself – enjoy!

The Body Shop Advent Calendars – Olivia the Owl version is £45.00 (worth £85). Dani the Deer version is £65.00 (worth £121). Freddie the Fox version is £99.00 (worth £231) and Countdown to New Year version is £45.00 (worth £85). All will be available from 31st October.

The Body Shop’s advent calendars really do look amazing this year! They usually have two or three, but this year they have four, to cater for different budgets – the Freddie Advent Calendar (above) is cruelty free, vegan, and contains some of the brand’s best make-up, skincare and bodycare products!

L”Occitane Classic Advent Calendar is £49.00 and the Luxury Advent Calendar is £89.00 Available from 20th September. 

I reviewed the 2017 L’Occitane Luxury Advent Calendar, and it was amazing! This year’s offering looks just as good (if not better) with fun, colourful packaging. The Luxury Advent Calendar is packed with L’Occitane luxury treats, or if you’re looking for something more affordable, the Classic Advent Calendar is available too at £49.00.

Rituals Advent Calendar 2D Exclusive version is £59.50, and the Deluxe 3D version is £89.00, available from 3rd September

Another duo of calendars are available this year from Rituals. The deluxe 3D Christmas tree contains 24 beautiful treats including fragrance, beauty, bath, and home products. Expect to find the new Ritual of Holi Crackling Body Mousse as well as The Ritual of Dao and The Ritual of Ayurveda from the hero collections included. The 2D Exclusive calendar is again more affordable, but still contains a fab selection of Rituals products.

Glossybox All I Want Advent Calendar, £75.00 for subscribers,  £99.00 for non subscribers. Pre-order available from September.

GlossyBox are also launching their first advent calendar this year! The All I Want Box includes 25 beauty treats with 16 of them being full-sized! (This really is unheard of for beauty advent calendars) You’ll find inside brands such as Pixi, Real Techniques, Huda Beauty, Yankee Candle, NARS and more – this is definitely one to snap up this year!

24 Days of Clinique, £76.00, available from the 14th September at Selfridges

The 24 Days of Clinique advent calendar includes a selection of mini Clinique favourites. This one is exclusive to Selfridges too so you won’t find it anywhere else.

bareMinerals advent calendars always look amazing, and this year’s is no exception. Containing a massive selection of products, including lip glosses, lipsticks, blushers, eyeshadows, mascaras and more, this would make a lovely gift for fans of the brand.

Another first, this time from Elle – this is quite unexpected! They’re jumping in at the luxury end of the market with a £125 calendar containing products worth £340. Expect to find brands including Hourglass, NARS, Dermalogica, Too Faced, and more. I think this one’s going to be super popular!

Lancome Advent Calendar, £130.00, available from the 26th September at Selfridges

you-beauty-advent-calendar-2016-review

The price of this calendar is £69.95, which I think is a really good deal – especially considering the products included are worth over £270. But if I were to be picky, I’d probably say the MUA palette is a little out of place here – it would have been nice to see something of a bit higher value in its place really. I’m not complaining though, I still think this is an excellent calendar!

The White Company Norwich Store Opening Event!

Posted on August 31, 2014

the-white-company-candles

Hi Guys!

On Wednesday night I had the pleasure of attending the opening event for The White Company’s brand new store in Norwich. I’d never been to one of their stores before so I had no idea what to expect, their website is gorgeous though so I knew I was going to be in for a treat! I took a friend along and as soon as we walked in we’re greeted with bubbly and canapés, and the shop had a lovely ‘new home’ scent. The White Company Norwich offers a large selection of high end homewares, clothing and home accessories over two floors – I was also told this is a brand new concept store for TWC, so this store is the first of it’s kind in the country!

As soon as we entered, I was instantly attracted to the candle and scent section! On the picture above you can see the lovely candles are housed in glass domes – you pick the domes up and sniff inside them to try the candles, the domes hold the scents amazingly well!

It was also great to hear that their candles are made in the same factory as Jo Malone – the whole company reminds me of Jo Malone actually; everything is of the highest quality, luxurious yet understated, and comes gorgeously packaged too.

There was a section in the corner next to the candles for soaps and lotions, I love that they’ve included a sink so you can easily try products out and wash your hands! The layout of the whole store is so open, everything is on display wanting to be touched and tried!

the-white-company-perfumes

The White Company also have their own mini perfume range, with Day and Night being their newest offerings. Day was a a lovely fresh scent and Night was a gorgeous heavier evening scent.

the-white-company-string-quartet

We wandered upstairs to take a look at the bedding and children’s sections, to be greeted by an amazing string quartet! (I must admit when I heard the music downstairs I thought it was a CD, ha ha!) I have a feeling this may not be a fixture though!

the-white-company-sweet-dreams-bed

There’s no doubt that The White company have taken time to plan the interior down to the finest detail. Dotted all over the store you can find amazing lit and animated projections – such a the text ‘Sweet Dreams are Made of This’ on a pillow, and an animated circus scene on a poster next to a child’s bed.

the-white-company-store-front

So this store really is pretty amazing! And I had such a lovely time! I purchased a Pomegranate home candle and the sweetest ‘Bella’ bunny comforter for my friend who has just had a little girl, I couldn’t resist! The White Company also kindly sent me home with a lovely goody bag, including a shower gel and soap set, a bar of organic chocolate and a mini Seychelles candle, thanks guys!

If you’re ever in Norwich you really must check the store out!

Have you ever shopped at The White company before? I hope you enjoyed my post! xxx
